New fursuit threadFresh from EuroFurence
New favorite Nick suit
surprised with how few neopet suits there are out there!
>>9600780I've seen 5-6 online. They're out there, just rare.
I forgot this guys name
I can't tell if we're supposed to be posting good fursuits or bad ones because this thread has some... hooo boy it has some train wreaks.
>>9601834I enjoy good craftsmanship and I enjoy train wrecks. Please post as you like as long as it's on topic.
Always liked the pro-level pokemon mascot suits.
Fan-made Zorua quadsuit. A bit rough (and old), but it's pretty unique. Not many hands and knees quads out there. I think Radywolf made it.
>>9602253Rady made quite a few Pokemon.Pic unrelated.
>>9602321Speaking of pokemon, Mimikyu had a mascot now. I don't think it'll ever leave Japan, though. Would have been great for marketing at Worlds.
>>9602344I love this Mimikyu and would like to take it for myself.
>>9602347I want that Japanese baseball mascot too
>>9602253Here's another Zorua
>>9602732Is this a fursuit or a giant plush? There's really not much there to tell one way or the other.
>>9602276i LOVE her suit and i'm so upset that she basically disappeared because of twitter getting angry at her for dumb stuffalways wanted a poodle character, but can't really draw them too well so i never went thru with it. she nailed it. <3>>9602347i love buffalo bell so much! jp baseball mascots are amazing. bell and leo are my favs. polly polaris is also super cute, she reminds me of a sonic oc to be honest
>>9602854i included the wrong image but LV's suit is nice toohere's what i meant to attach
>>9602854She's still active on her Tumblr art wise at least. I also thought the witch hunt was really dumb
>>9602767That's a fursuit
Not exactly a fursuit, but they are always present at furconsI think it looks kind of tragic
>>9602916She posted some suggestive (dont remember if there was nudity) Ed, Edd n Eddie artwork on her twitter and a bunch of tumblrtards came out of the woodworks and screeched, called her a pedophile and a bunch of other stuff and someone else made a beware twitter post of it and others retweeted it to try and "warn others of this disgusting horrible gross pedophile scum".Needless to say it was really dumb.
>>9603017*Ed Edd and Eddytwitter.com/vcr_wolfe/status/885717473407909888?lang=enHere's the post.I'm not big on art like this myself but it just kind of went overboard.Rebecca Sugar did the same shit and look where she is lol
>>9603017>>9603023I could tell this was going to be petty because I was blocked by that user I just had my own time in the furry dumpster fire of the week. Shit sucked, but it's over fast. Nothing to delete your account over.
>>9603229Speaking of fursuit drama, get a load of this: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zRPHUQ1eQ4l5EHeWWdEmmcjF14SceKSfw65A-FPCZJQ/mobilebasicSame maker who in the past accused a customer of being the one who broke into her workshop to steal a unfinished head after a burglary.Anyway, of all places, the Nut Job 2 premiere had a pretty good mascot. Animatronic too. I don't know why they spent that much money, though, considering it's the Nut Job 2.
So Walmart has fursuit heads now. How long til the $20 heads invade every con?
Some nice suits by Atlier Amanojaku
>>9603414you make a habit of this dont you
>>9603409Cute! Who's the maker?
>>9603419Yes yes I do. don't bully me anon
>>9603422Funny enough, the one in the red/orange is the president of the fursuit company Atelier Amanojaku, and the one in the red and white is his wife and one of the workers. So I met some of my suit makers at the con on accident. Got the design off of Furstar, their premade design site. You buy one and they make it into the suit
>>9603424it's okay anon, phones are weird sometimes.we had a partial kemosuiter at our meet today, I hope someone uploads a photo of them, their head was really cute
>>9603426Ah neat, I've been actually waiting for the right deisgn for me to pop up on there (when I also have the funds too)
Another suit by Amanojaku, I really like this one
>>9603428I'm just gonna upload a different photo anyway lol. Here's a finished pic during the productionI hope so too, what was the animal?>>9603429I did the same thing. I fell for her design and kind of just... waited. I think I saw it first in June and got it in December so it was kinda destiny
>>9603433Is that suit legless? The fur patterns look fantastic>>9603435I'm not sure, I think it had antlers, but it wasn't a deer. I didn't get a fantastic view of it in my own suit head
>>9603438That does happen. Hard to admire suits when you're in one lol.
>>9603438Nah, just a dropped crotch
>>9603445Ah, I thought the suit was looping off the photo and then back round and under his legs like a snake tail
>>9602854I like that you replied to the only two photos I posted in this thread. But yeah the witch hunt was fucking stupid.
>>9603426>you buy one and they make it into the suitWell shit.. I found one I like.http://furstar.jp/satogo.php?id=00292
>>9603727So a little over $4k, that's not terrible. Actually about the average of their suits now. They recently released an english pamphlet and their customs are starting at $3500.It's a lot of money, but for one of their suits, sounds about right lol.
>>9603573ayy for similar taste>>9603751their suits are pretty cute! i complimented your suit over on trash a few days ago already tho ahhaha3.5 seems really great. how expensive was it to have yours shipped?
>>9602344I want one of these actually. Not sure where to even start for commission though or a rough ballpark of what it might cost.
>>9603764If it's made the same way as the Pikachu costumes, it's an inflatable costume. To get an idea of what it's like, at least.
>>9603770Thanks mate. Didn't even know they were inflatable.
>>9603758Aw shit thanks anon.I didn't think the /cgl/ thread would continue so I posted on trash instead.For US it's always $150 shipping. They also get suits done really quickly. Check their main site to see when your suit would be done.I do wanna warn though that they don't really do WIPs, rather they'll show you the completed body, ask you to okay it, then continue until they finish the suit and then they rinse and repeat the process until you say "it's good, send it my way"PS I know it's already halfway through the month, but if you commission them for a custom suit of your OC (this is for anyone interested), you can get a $300 off discount thanks to an offer they made on FB
>>9603262Looks like they already have....
>>9603777oh man! I wish the timing was a little better. I'm in line to get a head made by another maker (I'm on their sort-of wait list, I theoretically COULD cancel but I have a feeling she's gonna stop making suits after this batch lmao)i was really considering autumnfallings for my next fullsuit, but i think i might go with them instead! way cheaper and i prefer kemono wayy moredo you happen to have an ig/twit/fa or anything you post pictures on? I like to follow cute suits!
>>9603790The FA is Fuwa~ and the Twitter is @FuwaKyandiiI haven't gotten to post too much suit wise, she came in May and was worn to Anthrocon; that's it lol
>>9603794I added you! >>9603780wow that happened.. fast
>>9603806Wow this needs to be shooped a millions times.
>>9603780Eh, as shit as they are, they're still a better base than what these people would have made themselves.
>tfw when ugly and wanna fursuit to hide self behind koromaru cosplay>tfw don't want to own a fursuit or be a furry.
>>9603979to be fair it's koromaruthere's a lot of cosplay suiters that aren't actually furries
I get wanting good vision but Jesus.
>>9603262is there really a shark one or is the advertisement lying? all the bins I've dove through have unicorns (whose long snout does not de-compress well) and sloths instead
>>9604059Shark is there but it's the most popular
>>9603979I'm somewhat in the same boat. I dig animalish characters (less than anthro level though, just ears and tails) and have some OCs but I don't consider myself a furry and only want to do a partial suit or full suit just because I always look derpy in cosplay and I want to be cute, damn it.
>>9604059There's a shark. I tried one on the other day for a laugh. I've only seen one or two of them available, same with the unicorns. Everything else is there in abundance.
>>9602964wtf is this even supposed to be
>>9604270Almost looks like a weird Forest Spirit.
>>9604270She called it a Harajuku Monster™, it's not really meant as a fursuit.
Found some old photos of the Digimon Tamers live show from years back
>>9605022This one's a fan creation. Metalgarurumon quadsuit
>>9600780Neopets has always been really strict with fan content, it doesn't surprise me
>>9605081But you'd still think there would be more fanmade suits out there. Even if you can't safely take commissions on them legally, what's stopping people from just making their own? They aren't going around suing people that simply made a costume for themselves to wear.
>>9605290Furries want their super special fursonas as suits rather than cosplay a known character.
>>9605300But that doesn't make sense considering how many anthro Pokemon fursuits are out there.
tbf if I was in the market to commission another fullsuit I would probably get a neopets one
>>9605434same..i was going to get my neo oc commissioned, but i also sent her the design of 1 more character. she ended up preferring the other. maybe one daaaayy
>>9606725Made by Kastronome on twitter, he also made a Greninja
>>9606725Is that really a suit? Looks more like a plushy
>>9606738Yep, it's a suit. Here's a Primarina, too.
>>9606725>>9606731>>9606746Are these made from minky? Looking for fabric choices for a lucario/mega lucario, generally I just use fleece/faux fur.
>>9606758Minky is a real bitch to work with, all seams show. Fleece is easier if you can do the henson stitch (doing that myself for a Snivy yuru-chara-style mascot, but it's hand stiching so it'll take a long time). If you can find it, use seal/plush fur. It's more expensive, but has a slightly thicker pile and hides seams better. It's also what the official pokemon mascots use. But again, the issue is finding the plush fur, it's hard to comeby the right colors compared to fleece.
>>9606773Thanks! Yeah i know the seal fur, that's a good option. And handsewing is a pain but it is beautiful indeed.
>>9606758I'm pretty sure it is the stretchy "Exterial" fabric (is patented by http://e-nakano.net/) that is also used for all the japanese MLP fursuits and other characters without long fur, pic related is also made from it.
>>9605081Honestly, why? They should be happy anybody is still interested in their decrepit 2000's website.
>>9606818>http://e-nakano.netIs there anyway to get that fabric imported, either through them directly or a middleman shipping/distribution service? Or is it Japan-only?
>>9606997You can use an SS with them just fine, at least that's how a friend got http://www.e-nakano.net/informaition/list/sf240/sf240.html via Noppin.Pic related.
>>9606818My fursuit crushI love furry for the craftsmanship as much as the cringe
I adore this suit
I love this suiter so much.
Flamedramon, in all the low-res glory
>>9606818The seams show a lot on it :( Other than that the texture looks amazing>>9607075sexy pixels
>>9607042>marrying a Furby
>>9607075Higher-res for you, because someone had reposted to deviantart
>>9607427Ah thanks. Higher res images of things like this are hard to comeby. Also I really want this suit.
>>9603780>Buys shitty 20$ mask and "modifies" it to hell and back to make it his fursonathis is a new level of depressing
>>9608351There are people that can do this well tho (not the same kind of mask but "Mr. Wolf" is also just a halloween one).
>>9608440Just buy an actual base, Jesus Christ
>>9608619Especially considering this one is a 60 dollar mask to start with so you don't even get the "it was really cheap" excuse.
>>9608652>60 dollarsYou know you can get those for like 20 bucks of AE, right?
>>9607029Thanks for the link; that stuff is fascinating. Do you know if you can get it by the meter, or do you have to get a whole bolt?
Super Lucky's Tale mascot at Gamescom.
>>9609041>>Honestly, I prefer this style of costume to standard fursuits. I also want to wear that suit pretty bad
>>9608746You can get it by meter, she needed quite a lot so she bought 3.
>>9609098learn how to greentext jesus christ
>>9610424>They're not meant to do thatActually they do once a while in the show.
>>9610424>this>quad shapeDo you even know shit about fursuiting?
Why can't more suits be this good? Padding makes everything better.
>>9610447>Padding makes everything better.Eh, it's all right for cartoony stuff if that's what you're shooting for, but cartoony stuff's overdone for these kinda costumes if you ask me.I forewent digitigrade stilts when the ones I made didn't work out for digitigrade padding, and while it worked for what it was meant to do, it ballooned my lower half out (which already had a rather large tail) and is perpetually warm even if my upper half's rather chilly.
>>9610424Quad suits are hard to make and uncomfortable as hell to wear, though, I don't blame anyone for doing two leg suits.
>>9610430>>9610432I didn't mean quad in the sense of an actual quadsuit. I know what they are, anon, contrary to your "shit". Rather I meant the proportions of the suits are still as if the ponies just got off four legs (hence the quad) and walked on their hind legs. Sometimes it works, sometimes it seems a little...unbalanced? Either way. I prefer certain styles, people prefer other ones, what can ya do?
Game of Thrones dragon suits. Viserion needs to be spraypainted grey to look more like Sindragosa, though
>>9611970>Calling wyverns dragons.REEEEEE>This is why I refuse to watch this.
>>9611505>I didn't mean quad in the sense of an actual quadsuit. I know what they are, anon, contrary to your "shit".Yeah sure, totally forgot the day when everything not being plantigrade automaticlly made something quad.>Rather I meant the proportions of the suits are still as if the ponies just got off four legs (hence the quad) and walked on their hind legs.They aren't or else they would have their hand hooves almost bellow their knees which they don't. Also, they wouldn't have slim necks, shoulders or a curvy shape if they had a quad-like pody.
>>9612430Related, actual quad trying to stand straight.
>>9612431That quadsuit looks really nice! Usually it looks a bit awkward.
>>9611970I think these are badThey don't really translate well as GOT charactersThese are darling, but what is the context?
>>9612429fucking autist lmao
Eye anon from the last thread with a followup, if anyone remembers. Bought some resin and did my first "proof of concept" pulls with embellishments i had lying around the house. Definitely made some mistakes, as you can see the pupil on the top right migrated a lot, but with more experimentation I think something is viable here. Id like to try some different kinds of resin and different styles of production soon.
>>9612431I have seen gifs of this suit floating around before and always admired it- does anyone on here know who made it, and if they do comissions, or if this was just a personal project? I would kill to have something similar
>>9613105I believe its by BeastCub
>>9613105>>9612431This is a BeastCub suit. I can't believe OP didn't post the video https://youtu.be/Xi8l0CnOYSAThe dance is performed by BC's sister. It was her first con since she was in a hit and run (her boyfriend was killed as well as 3 of her dogs)
>>9610100>>9610330>>9610424Keep mlp on /mlp/
>>9613105It's Beastcub. I've heard mixed things about their construction, but the results look great. There's a youtube video from a con that's like an hour of them talking about their methods.
>>9613279/mlp/ sends people to /cgl/ when it is costume related, just saying.
>>9613279Fuck right off
>>9618468That's adorable and perfect
What do you think of these?
>>9606818Well that turned me into a furry
>>9620113>>9620117It looks like a cheaper and a little bit shitty interpretation of the broadway style costumes, so if it's for a middle/high school play or halloween or similar, that would be acceptable. Wouldn't think of much of them if I saw it at a con though.
What's your opinion on suitmakers who heavily use a standard set headbases for commissions? I'm torn on them. Sometimes it works, but other times the suits all look the same to me. What really gets my OCD is when they make a fox look like a dog.
>>9621572It looks bad. I'm shocked every time someone is happy with their OneFurAll suits. They look like garbage. I make furcon vids and specifically leave them out
>>9621764idk how anyone can be happy w OFA either waytheir queues are stupid
>>9608652Walmart got them for quite cheap desu.
>>9622125Those are so shitty they have a certain charm to them that OFA suits and the like lack.
>>9604055a gift for you
>>9623022The suiter deleted all of her social media, sadly. She had a great suit [spoiler]and a scary personality[/spoiler]
>>9623029Well shit, wish I knew /cgl didn't have spoilers.
>>9623030Easy way to check is see if a board does spoilers is if there's the checkbox for spoilering images next to the choose file button or not.
>>9623029Her tumblr is pwoodle
>>9623288Holy shit that was disgusting. Having someone else wear your suit...so you as a human can make tits-out softcore porn with it...a greasy human with a huge cartoon dog...
>>9623308furries were a mistake
>>9623316nah just murrsuiters
>>9623348wouldn't the fur on the bottom get nasty immediately?
Arito recently made his Twitter account public and said he is working on a new personal suit. He hasn't made anything in quite a while so I'm looking forward to seeing it.
>>9623579Had to follow him on another account, Just found he blocked me for some reason and I honestly have no clue why. Also that suit is adorable and and I want to see it in real life!
>>9623700That's weird, I followed him in the last couple of days but he hasn't been active since then so I'll wait and see if he does anything about my account with about 3 posts ever on it.Also I own that suit! I bought it a few months ago but that photo's from one of her previous owners. It's fun seeing where a suit has been if you're not the first owner of it.
>>9623746Awesome! I don't have a fursuit currently, but I did commission the Lycanroc maker for a suit recently. Have you been to any cons?
>>9623752Which one? I've seen three or so Lycanrocs out there.I've only been to one convention in fursuit so far which was Confuzzled earlier this year which I wore my Zorua partial suit to as I didn't have Natalie at that point because I didn't win the auction she was being sold in. Luckily for me the winner flaked out and the owner contacted me and sold the suit to me directly!I will probably do Confuzzled again next year and I'm hoping to get to Eurofurence as well.
>>9623772Oh that one! I like that one. Did you commission them for a pokemon?
>>9623782Yep! A Zoroark. Should be done by the end of the year. Also, is your zorua partial the one I'm thinkng of? (I think it's posted on vp occasionally)
>>9623788Nice choice, rusefoxes need more love in general.Also it might be? I posted it once or twice in the mystery dungeon general before but not since then.Funny if other people are posting it though.
>>9623791Yeah, that's the one! Very cute. I'm considering making a Zorua myself to go along with big rusec but maybe a hands+knees quad like I posted above.
>>9623793I think I mentioned earlier I was working on a Snivy suit, so here are the results so far. A bit rough and there is room for improvement (and handsewing fleece to hide the seams is a bitch), but I like how it's turned out so far.
>>9624026Looking great! How are you going to keep the tail up?
>>9624045The tail is pretty much solid foam. Started out as a shell like the rest of it, but the leaf on top was too heavy. Endless regluing sessions later and filling the cavity with foam, I got it to stick up. When I wear the suit the tail does perk up more than what's in the picture.Tail leaf is a bit fatter than I would have liked, and the tail droops, so next time I think I'll make the whole thing out of wire mesh perhaps. For now, I may resort to fishing wire.
>>9624083Also, I think this may have been asked in a previous thread, but a tip for making body pods I found is to make a cardboard pattern, then remove radially the thickness of the foam you'll be using. Otherwise the foam bodypod will be bigger than the pattern! Sometimes CAD software helps with planning, too.
>>9624026wewshape looks good so far anonthe feet remind me of the enormous foam legs that came with Natalie for her cartoony look
>>9624104Thanks! Yeah, they're really fun to wear.
>>9600956>tfw still waiting on a commission from this bitch from ten fucking years ago
>>9624109Whoa seriously? Damn that's awful. But it kinda makes sense...she's planned so many projects and never finished them. Still scummy thoughFun fact: She's Verlisify's ex-girlfriend.
>>9623579Meh. There are tons of better makers out there now. I don't really have high expectations.
>>9623579You know, deep down I'm still kinda bitter with myself I didn't pick up Dorito both times he was sold, first by Arito, then by SVC. Would have fit me perfectly.Syber owns Dorito now, from what I remember.
>>9624153Dorito is a pretty nice suit. I've loved Natalie's design since seeing it however many years ago and still do, I'm glad I was lucky enough to be able to get her. I was pretty bummed out when I got auction sniped.
>>9624157It's a pretty nice suit, but pretty much all the major players are making digi that well now, and I never really loved his head.
>>9624153yeah she owns him nowi really would of loved to own him too, such a perfect suit. wish he continued with ruffled designs. dream maker right there.
>>9624291I wonder why RD never worked out. He has a day job, though, right? Maybe that got in the way.
>>9625637Meant for >>9625218
>>9625637who knows! he only ever made a couple commissions before RD too. maybe he just doesn't enjoy it.i'm the same way. i like making things for myself. it's a shame, i'd love to share and create for others- but i can't get into it
Here's a pretty interesting suit from Atlier Amanojaku. The suiter's on their knees
>>9627433These are a type of suit I want so god damn much
>>9627433>>9627434They look cute but damn that seems annoying to get around in
>>9627586kemono suits summed up lol
>>9627586You gotta make sacrifices sometimes to look cute in suit. Fight through the pain, etcSpeaking of Kemo suits, I've heard mixed things on K-line. Rady's suits are fantastic, as are Eixin's, but some of the commissions seemed rushed to some people, including the showcase suits. Are they worth commissioning, if they ever open another showcase round? 4-6k is a lot of money to risk having a suit with symmetry problems and the like.
>>9627750Rady doesn't really work on the suits anymore. It's other people they brought on if I refall
>>9627750>if they ever open another showcase roundTheir last Showcase round has been open for a while already but now the team only does mass-manufacturing of recolors of a single character.http://www.k-line.cc/cn3/showcase_english.html
>>9628135Hmm, interesting, but I'm a bit disappointing they aren't making multiple character designs anymore. I think if I want a kemo suit, I'll go with a character from Furstar, then.
>203 replies>58 posters
>>9628198What's your issue? That's an average of 4 posts per poster, and this is a long running thread where people may very well have reason to post multiple times. People talk and respond to others here, not just post one image and move on.
>>9628198more people than i expected t b h
>>9628135Sad if they're only doing one design and their quality is allegedly dropping on top of that. 6k is a lot for a suit, even moreso when you don't get to have a custom design and the work is done by newer workers or apprentices rather than the artist people know the brand best by.
I'm so ready to sell one of my suits. Had a falling out with the maker and now I can't stand the thing. MFF will be the last event I wear her to
>>9629081that's a shame anon, I hope it sells smoothly
>>9629081What kind of suit is it?
>>9629175An ElkDragon suit. I've had her almost three years.
>>9629226Sorry for the sideways pic, I'm just on my phone>>9629084There's a DHC suit that I've seen for sale for ages. It's been a nightmare for this person to get rid of it.
>>9629226That's a lovely suit, anon. Sorry to hear you don't feel good about wearing it anymore. What are you asking, if you don't mind?
>>9629226holy crap she's adorable!!!i know i won't be able to afford it when you sell it but god damn wish i could
Ordered three yards of faux fur today, wish me luck.
>>9629963Cute face :)
I need some opinions anon. For non-cute Pokemon suits, what would you use as material for the body? Specifically researching if making a Machamp would be feasible, but I'm a bit hung up on the material for the skin.Right now I'm thinking either>fleece>fleece and latex>a stretchy cottonPic related if you can't imagine fleece+latex; it looks a bit gross but also more smooth like I think a Machamp would be irl?
>>9607042Who is the orange cutie?
>>9623086Either no boards I checked have spoilers, or i'm not seeing the box.[spoiler] i have 4chanx tho[/spoiler]
>>9630032Honestly might be worth looking up godzilla and other kaiju costumes if you're going for a skin look, only thing I can think of. Sorry anon
>>9630032I would still go for some kind of fabric that has a pile, so shapes under it are less defined. Upholstery foam cut into shape will always have irregular surface that will shape through thin fabric. So fleece without the latex would be cool, i also think with latex it'll be way too much work to do an entire machamp. Also I recognize that cropped shot, cool costume!If you wanna choose a thin fabric, maybe peachskin or velvet? It'll still keep the cartoony feel without having a pile. You can use half inch quilt batting to even out the surface of upholstery foam easily before applying the skin.
>>9629984>>9630367Aw thank you both! its my first, so I'm always worried to work on it, out of fear ill mess it up.
>>9630457>>9630464Alright, thanks guys. I'll definitely keep looking at different suits, this is a long term idea anyways. I'd never heard of peachskin fabric but at first sight it looks interesting.>Also I recognize that cropped shot, cool costume!It really is, and essentially something like that is a dream costume for me. Maybe not specifically the character but the idea of it.>sage for not really fursuit related
>>9623791Update on my Zoroark, commission will start in November, should take three months. After that, maybe a Zorua or Greninja commission? Not sure. I'd make the costume that wasn't commissioned, along with my dragon character. I've never seen a dragon fursuit made like I'd truly want, though those GoT suits were close. I may have the dragon head sit above my own and have bigass wings and a long tail. Maybe semi-stilts too. (My character is a wyvern)
>>9606758Working on my first digitigrade legs for my lucario
>>9631580Nice! I've got a commission for one of my favourite Neopet designs that should be done around March/April time.I'll have to remember to keep an eye out for a Zoroark suit next year.
>>9631705Oh shit anon, if there's a fursuit thread open at that time you -have- to share. Xmas Bori was one of my favourite Neopets too!>>9631605Looks good so far!
>>9631724Oh you betcha I willIt was a tough decision for me because it came down to Christmas and Island but I think I'd prefer to not have the same colour as Elbi's Bori suit, not so much about people maybe thinking it might be a copycat suit but more because I think I'd rather have there be two different Bori suits rather than two islanders.There's also an island Lutari I've seen online as well. Island is a great pet colour.
>>9631705are you the borianon with the plush?im so glad there's more neo love around
>>9631775yesI have the zorua suit as well
>>9631705I don't see many neopets fursuits around, I thought there would be more, I love those designs, and this one looks really nice too!
>>9632040Same! I've seen a few around and talked to an anon who is working on a faerie xweetok and there's also someone making a darigan gelert
>>9629477I don't know what to price her at. I was considering doing a suit trade, but I'm very small and she won't fit someone much larger. >>9629865Thank you anon. I'm glad there's interest. The legs are my favorite part, she did a really good job.
>>9632772Your suit is very cute anon, I hope you find a buyer.
>>9601834>I can't tell if we're supposed to be posting good cosplays or bad ones because this board has some... hooo boy it has some train wreaks.
Might anyone have a good pattern for how to make the hood/cowl part of a fursuit head? I'm making a costume of the guy in the pic and I've never attempted anything with fur before and wondered if there was a specific way the pattern is drafted so the fur looks good without looking boxy or like just a hoodie made of fur.
>>9633679Go to costume help >9619600
>>9633704Ah ok sorry, I thought it would be better to ask here since its specifically fursuit stuff but will give that a try, thanks!
Who are the best fursuit dancers? People dancing in full body costumes is really endearing to me. Shame that most clips I'm finding have garbage music and suits and while the dances aren't always great it's more than I would have expected out of them.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8vuXyM7zAY
>>9634123Whether or not this is a fursuit, it's the best dance I've ever seen at a furcon. https://youtu.be/XCI367Qp8uoI like this song, dance, and suit but the edited music completely ruins it for me. I wish we could get past the censored song fear. https://youtu.be/IR4s91czFgcSince I'm a garbage Tayerr and Telephone fan, this one has always been my favorite
>>9634414https://youtu.be/qI2ldirdfJUThat's the link for my second comment. https://youtu.be/CAmb5Rh-tuQI don't think this girl can dance.
>>9634123>>9634414>>9634416Man, I wish I could dance as well as some of these guys.
how does one go about making a head for a character with no visible eyes?thinking maybe i could see through the mouth, but it might also be weird for it to be gaping open all the time, thoughts?i'm super new at this, didn't know /cgl/ had a fursuit thread actually
>>9635606zoomed out and without the placeholder jaw i pinned, the character's gonna be a valais blacknose sheep.
>>9635615Show us the character reference
>>9635623not at my desk right now, but here's a cropped rough sketch i found
>>9635606while a static jaw is very common with fursuits. this could be a difficult head to wear. a big mouth will give you the room you need to breath and see, since you wont able to install a fan in the mouth to help ventilation. but if does turn out to be too hot, you might able to install a fan in an ear
>>9636080yeah, i got two small fans with 9 volts to hook up, i figured maybe i could put one on the back of the neck and maybe another one at the top inside, since it won't be completely sitting on my head?
>>9635626The face will be solid black, correct?
>>9636418yeah! at first i was thinking there could be eye holes, but i could put mesh over it and then the fur so i had another way to see? do people do that?
>>9636525You have the right idea, yeah. Find the sturdiest mesh you can and use E6000 to glue it tightly over your eye holes and pin it while it dries- it needs to be as tight as you can get it so it doesnt sag. The tricky part is your fur or whatever you're putting over the face needs to be super thin because you'll be looking through that AND the mesh of the eyes. I've done this technique for other non-fursuit costumes and it works great but if your fur is really thick its not gonna work too well.
>>9636531thanks for the advice! have you ever used black furs for your own costumes?also can curly hair like a sheep's wool on a fursuit head be mimicked with the use of regular fur? a non /cgl/ friend of mine said i should just tape medical cotton balls to my head.
>>9636576I was using a very thin black velvet, almost like a peach skin so that I could see through it but it still had a fuzzy appearance.The only way I know of to get your fur to look like sheeps wool- and this is a terrible idea, Im warning you now- is to wash the pieces and then put them through the dryer on low. I've seen some people actually pull it off and it came out looking a bit messy but like wool however I do not not recommend it.A better idea might be to get actual wool roving and either needlefelt all the little"balls" and attach them down or just roll bits of the wool and glue gun it down to the base.Failing either of those methods, just buy faux sheep wool looking fabric, it exists but its super pricey.
>>9636592thanks again, is it tricky to glue gun wool? it just sounds texture wise a little messy.
>>9636615Yeah its gonna be very messy (and a real bitch) unfortunately, you just gotta go slow and know that you really got secure it down well.
What's everyone's opinion on kigurumi-type fursuits? Personally, I like them a lot, if done well
>>9637019I find them super creepy for some reason I can't pin down.
>>9637024For her specifically, it's the dead eyes combined with the furless face. Something like that could work, with a different approach to making the eyes to make 'em less uncanny.
>>9637019I mean, I'd probably wear this if I had the chance. But anime girl kigurumis very easily go into the uncanny valley, and face design is everything. Closed mouth, unfocused eyes, combined with bad body padding and wrinkled, wrong-color bodysuits make them look super scary
>>9637028I think more advanced costumes like this have following eyes, which could help. I'm ok with the furless face in this case, though it looks pretty bad with other costumes.
Besides kigs, what do people think of DVCs resin kits? I've bought a few Sergal heads from them, and every time I've found the symmetry to be awful. Their dragon heads are great though
>>9637045Never bought anything from them, but plan to get some smaller parts of theirs at some point (Claws, jaw sets, etc.). Only thing I have to say is they're popular enough that competent fursuits have a slight case of same face with people using their heads.
>>9606758>>9631605My lucario is progressing well!>>9637019Ah man that looks creepy. I've never seen a kigurumi that wasn't creepy now i think about it.
>>9637056Wow, very cool, Anon! Where did you get that blue fur? Might be good for a mascot-style Greninja. I'm working with fleece with a Snivy suit at the moment, but seam hiding is very tricky, and having to Henson-stitch the whole thing is a pain
>>9637056good lift on the tail anon
>>9637056Yeah, and the feet are fantastic
>>9637060I got it from a dutch supplier, it's incredibly smooth and unlike usual fur it has a silky inside which feels nice and cool to the skin too. The pile is 1 cm, just a bit thicker than seal fur which is perfect imo. Downside is that the blue i got has fur going in different directions in several spots, i'm going to try hot air to fix the fur direction (you can see it on the reflection in the photo)https://www.textielstad.nl/flex-fur-kobalt.html>>9637063Thanks! I was fighting with it at first then i realized when you make a longer surface area you can lift much more weight. Like a hook for a heavy duty plank. So I added a longer end of wood and now it presses on my back in a better angle
>>9637056I'm almost jelly, (Made a Lucario a long time ago, and, lets just say it needs a LOT of tlc at this point.)What do you use for the cream fur? I've been looking on and off for something that might work (Used something more akin to sheep wool the first time around for whatever reason.) and everything I've seen seemed a bit short. (3.5" pile length.)>That tail solutionSlightly more elegant than what I did, (2-3 metal coat hangers straightened and run down the length of the tail with the other end bent at a 90 degree angle up to halfway up the back and looped back around with two belts around the torso to keep it attached.)I can't tell how large that piece of wood is, do you get much in the way of unwanted movement with your attachment set up?
>>9637077I used a 4" (10cm) pile fur from http://www.stoffen-online.nl/bont-langhaar-toffee.html. Was actually left over from my blaziken so that was convenient. Needs some shaving though because i have a very slim taille and I want it to reflect that from lucario aswell. The wooden plate is 6 inches long, and theres one strong metal wire running through the tail, with a lets say 10 inch thin pvc pipe for the first portion else it droops. The pvc pipe is clamped to the wood plate with the screws. So someone would have to bump and bend the first 6 inches of the tail to do any damage or hurt me, the rest is flexible thankfully. The belt has some wide elastic in it so it has some wiggle room in case anyone will
>>9637087Tbh the most important part about keeping a tail like this lifted is to keep the angle rigid and unmovable, while keeping enough surface area on your back (the green part in the sideview)
>>9637169Man I love this suit so much, if I ever see an Arito suit up for sale I'll definitely jump at the chance.
Whats a good place to get long white faux fur? Figured this thread would be best to ask. I can only find short faux furs. It's to make a tail for my Halloween costume.
>>9637227Nj, USA. I'm looking for online places since all my nearby fabric stores are an hour+ drive away
>>9637268meant to reply to >>9637252
>>9637227>>9637268There a bunch of places that have up to 3" white faux fur, were you looking for even longer than that? What length we talking here?
>>9637610it looks like its got a maxipad in its mouth
>>9637610Because it's cheap and low effort? You're going to see a lot of mods of those 20 dollar walmart masks as long as they are plentiful.
>>9637610I wish the eyes were bigger. There's too much sclera
>>9637647shitty shitty edit but this what I meant.
>>9637067>>9637087Thanks for the links (I assume Blazikont-)anon, I saw you posting in the Dutch thread too and wanted to ask about fur supplies but forgot. The Netherlands is close enough that shipping wouldn't be awful.
>>9637056The head is on the way too, furring next>>9638156An infamous nickname i'm afraid, but goodluck on the fur! I also took samples from www.fakefurshop.com/ which has a large assortment and is technically based in holland but ships favorably throughout europe. Didn't find the fur i wanted though but maybe you find something suitable.
>>9638242Looks good! Ears especially look spot on. (Couldn't ever do it in foam like that myself 'cause to OCD about having it on model.) Only thing though, eyes looks a bit high. Don't know how you'd go about changing it one way or the other, but I can't see how the black face bands'll fit where they are now.
>>9638253They seemed a little low when i was trimming the head ( i made a 3d pattern like your example) so i cut up some room on the top side but maybe youre right indeed. I need a fresh look tomorrow anyway since you tend to stare blind on a piece after hours and its hard to spot deficiencies. Will probably glue some foam back on to make up for it, thanks for the heads up! (hehe heads up)
>>9638288Always good to keep ahead of problems before they're a pain to fix. I'd say for a non-lucario head that'd be the optimum spot to stick 'em, but lucario has a massive forehead / slopped head top area, so where they should be looks kinda weird without the face mask thing framing his face.(This post only exists for the pun.)
>>9638288Made a quick 'n dirty overlay for a visual. Doesn't match 1:1 obviously, but I hope this helps.
>>9637619This. I'm not saying it's good at all compared to a proper fursuit head, but considering it's like>$20 for premade mask>$2 for craft foam>a couple more bucks for the "piercings">waste fabric for the mouth and tongueand probably like an hour of work at the absolute max, it's not that bad and I've seen much worse outcomes with lots more effort put in.
>>9638382Thanks that actually helps a lot! I actually also made the nose longer and you can see that here too
>>9637268How long we talking?>Pile or fur length of 1-1.5"https://www.stylishfabric.com/white-60-wide-luxury-shag-fur.html>Pile of ~2"http://www.syfabrics.com/View.aspx/Long-Pile-Shaggy-Fur/White-Shaggy-Fur/273/186>Pile ~3", offwhite though, and kinda wavyhttp://www.syfabrics.com/View.aspx/Mongolian-Fur/Off-White-Mongolian-Fur/4570/481>3.5" pile, kinda wavyhttp://www.fabricempire.com/faux-fur-fabric-long-pile-gorilla-white-60-wide-sold-by-the-yard.aspx
Speaking of fur, where could I find seal fur/plush fur in a good variety of colors?
>>9639564Lol all her friends must be whales. All two of them.
>>9639571She's 5' 9" lol
>>9639154https://www.mendels.com/Seal.htmlhttps://fursuitsupplies.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=35_55And idk the difference with short fur, but they have a lot of different types of short furs on those sites.
>>9639694Nice. I'm thinking on making that Zorua quad with seal fur perhaps, so these should be helpful
Finished the lucario head, the short fur is annoying to handstitch straight and i'm not completely happy about the eyes, i think they look a bit uncanny. But hard to do much about that on a cartoon character. All that's left is the arms now.
>>9639936They look uncanny 'cause the pupil & iris are way too small. Other than that, looks alright.
>>9639942Good point, maybe i can fix them up a little bit. i didn't count in the extra sclera white you get from adding a foam border.. Mad respect for fursuiters who make their heads look amazing though, this is so hard to make it look convincing
>>9639944are they supposed to be follow me eyes? if so the pupil/iris need to be in the center of the eye. having them off center will mess with the following effect.
>>9639967No not really, the head doesnt have the right shape for it like real fursuit heads, so i only added a very small border to help with the eye attachment. But it looks a lot better already with bigger eyes
>>9607068I'm not usually one for skin suits (idk if this technically counts but it's very short pile) but this is so damn cute
>>9640658it really works on her! it's such a nice look to mix in with her dancing. she's such a cute suiter.
